Hi, I am new to this support group, but have been pulling my hair for a long time. I started when I was about eight years old. I spent three years in a live-in treatment program as a teenager where I focused on my hairpulling along with other teenage defiant behaviors. I was able to manage everything except the hairpulling. I am now 26 and a professional counselor. I am embarressed by my hairpulling. It has gotten worse over the past six months and my hair is quickly thinning. I have hair in my car and friends joke about how my hair sheds. I have always pulled my hair, but never this badly. I have tried behavioral therapy and medication. I try to wear my hair up or with a bandanna. I still find myself pulling my hair. I am very frusterated with myself and am looking for any suggestions/support. : ) -Amber
